From Poverty to Power: Celebrities Who Started With Nothing

by Michael Deane

This is kinda old news, but you may like it. When thinking of the "new breed" of celebrity - from the Kardashians to Paris Hilton to the stars of "The Hills" - fame seems to depend on the fact that they're already fabulously wealthy. Well, despite these new trends, some of the most famous and wealthy people did not come from rich families - many of them were born into poverty. Read on to learn some of their stories and what it took from having nothing to multi-million-dollar empires.

The Phenomenon - Oprah Winfrey

Surely the most well-known rags-to-riches story of our era is the story of Oprah Winfrey. Having been born into abject poverty in rural Mississippi, Winfrey went from being a young girl clothed in potato sacks (literally) to the richest and most powerful female media mogul in the world. Winfrey was able to accomplish this by moving from a disruptive and abusive household in with her stricter father.

Once Winfrey was subject to discipline and was supported at school, she became an honors student and got her big break when she became a newscaster in Nashville after finishing college. Winfrey has come a long way from her poor upbringings, and is worth $2.9 billion as of 2009, according to Forbes.

A Magical Story - J.K. Rowling

Similar to Winfrey's story, J.K. Rowling went from being on the dole to starting a $15 billion industry. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books series, was estimated to be worth $843.92 million U.S. dollars as of 2008. She began writing the series while she was on welfare and by incorporating some of the darker elements of her own life - the loss of her mother and battle with depression - into the novels, Rowling's books became a success after an initial press of 1,000 sold out, giving way to Potter mania.

Signing the Stars - David Geffen

David Geffen is a name that many of you will have heard, but few will understand the significance. Geffen is responsible for signing Crosby, Stills and Nash, Bob Dylan and Nirvana, starting Geffen Records and was a founding member of Dreamworks studio.

Geffen grew up poor in Brooklyn, living in a one-bedroom apartment with his family and sleeping on the couch. Geffen did poorly in high school and flunked out of college, but his natural gift in spotting and developing musical talent — along with business sense that he learned from his mother - made him a millionaire by the time he was 26.

At 67, renowned art collector and philanthropist Geffen is worth an estimated $4.6 billion - making him one of the richest behind-the-scenes players in showbiz.

Making It With Music - Jay-Z

Another music mogul that made his way from the bottom to the top is Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter. Carter is as much a businessman as he is a performer, but began his life in the Brooklyn's Marcy Housing Projects. Carter was raised by his mother, and was involved in crime when growing up - at 12 he shot his brother in the arm for stealing his jewelry.

Carter began as a rapper and went on to become involved in everything from nightclubs and clothing to being a part owner of the New Jersey Nets. As of 2009, Carter was worth over $150 million according to Forbes, and seems to be broadening his reach in the business world.

Her Cash Will Go On - Celine Dion

Though she's kind of faded from the spotlight since her late '90s ubiquity - Celine Dion is still ranked as one of the highest-grossing female entertainers and in 2007 was listed by Forbes as the fifth richest female entertainer, coming in at $250 million. She also was ranked as the top-earning singer of the decade by U.K.'s The Sun. Not bad for the 14th (!) of 14 children growing up in a poor household in rural Quebec, where her father made $160 per week to support the family of 16.

Like many of these rag-to-riches stories, it seems Celine's success owed as much to luck as talent - she was discovered singing when she was 12 and continued to create more songs and make more money.

Canadian Songstress - Shania Twain

Another Canadian songstress that grew up with nothing in the rugged wilderness was Shania Twain (born Eileen Regina Edwards). The recently separated Twain grew up in Timmins, Ontario in a household that was too poor to pay for heat, and at times couldn't afford to buy food. By the age of eight, Twain was honing her craft in bars in order to provide an extra $20 for her family.

Twain continued her singing career into high school and was soon on her way to becoming the highest-selling female musician of all time. Her net worth is estimated at around $450 million.

The Bottom Line

From inner-city housing projects to rural homesteads without heat, many of the most famous and wealthy celebrities had very humble beginnings. What brought all of these stars from rags to riches was focusing in on their natural talents, dedicating themselves to its development and not stopping until they had a hefty bank account. It just goes to show that you don't have to be born rich to become rich.

एकछिन हाँसौं

मैले त हाँसो थाम्न सकिन, तपाईंहरु पनि एकैछिन् मनोरञ्जन लिनुस् ...

Saturday, August 21, 2010


"ट्रिङ ट्रिङ, ट्रिङ ट्रिङ, ट्रिङ ट्रिङ"
फोनको घन्टी लगातार बजिरह्यो । यसो घडी हेरें रातको ३ बज्न लागेको थियो । १ बजे छोरोलाई सुताएर भर्खर निदाउन लागेको मात्रै थिएँ । फोन उठाउन अल्छी लाग्यो, म उठाउने कोसिस गर्दिन । फोनको घन्टी फेरि बज्न थाल्छ । आफुसँगै मस्त निद्रामा सुतेको छोरो उठ्छ कि भन्ने पिर लाग्यो । अनि विवश भएर फोन उठाउन गएँ । पक्कै नेपालबाट आएको फोन हुनुपर्छ । जति भने पनि नलाग्ने कस्तो होला नेपालको मान्छेलाई । भित्र भित्र मुर्मुरिंदै फोन उठाएँ ।
'हेलो, दाइ ' उताबाट अपरिचित नारीको आवाज आयो । उनको स्वर अलिक चर्को थियो । शायद आत्तिएर हो या एक्साइटेड भएर मैले खुट्ट्याउन सकिन ।
"तपाईंलाई त चिन्न सकिन, को बोल्नु भो ?" मलाई दाइ भनिसकेपछि त पक्कै पनि चिनेको मानिस हुनुपर्छ भन्ने लाग्यो । तर मैले सम्झिन सकिन, को हुन उनी भनेर ।
'दाइ म मेरिना । चिन्नु भयो ? तपाईंको घर भन्दा तल्लो लाइनको, बाबुकान्छाको ठुली छोरी ।' उनीले आफ्नो परिचय दिइन ।
अचानक एक दशकको विदेश बसाइमा पहिलो पल्ट आफुले सोच्दै नसोचेको मान्छेको फोन आएकोले अलिकति औपचारिकता पुर्‍याउनै पर्‍यो ।
"के छ ठुली हालखबर ? अनि सबै जना आरामै ?" नाम मेरिना भए हामी बोलीचालिमा उसलाई ठुली भनेर नै बोलाउँथ्यौं ।
'सबै ठिक छ दाइ ।'
"के भएर सम्झियौ त यतिका वर्षपछि ?"
'काम परेपछि सम्झनै पर्‍यो नि दाइलाई ।' उनीले सिधै भनिन् ।
"अनि के काम पर्‍यो त्यस्तो मैले गर्ने ?" शायद पैसा चाहिएर होला, मनमनै गुने ।
'दाइले स्पोन्सर लेटर पठाइदिन पर्‍यो मेरो लागि । '
म झसङ्ग भएँ, आफुले सोच्दै नसोचेको जवाफ पाएर ।
"केका लागि ?"
'मेरो डिभी परेको छ नि दाइ । स्पोन्सर लेटर चाइन्छ रे त्यसैले ।'
"आजकल त वेलकम लेटर मात्रै भए पुग्छ रे नि होइन र?" मैले सुनेको कुरो भनें ।
'होइन दाइ स्पोन्सर लेटर नै चाइन्छ रे?' उनीले अड्डी लिइन ।
"हेरम त्यसको लागि म के गर्न सक्छु । बरु ठुली के के चाइन्छ मलाई ईमेल गर । मैले सकेको गरौंला नि ।" मैले कुराकानी छोट्ट्याउने कोसिस गर्छु ।
'हस्, म तपाइँलाई इमेलमा लेखेर पठाउँला ।'
"अनि ठुली अर्को कुरो चैं फोन गर्दा त्यहाँको कि बिहान या बेलुकी मात्रै गर्नु । दिउँसो गर्दा याहाँको राती हुन्छ ।" आफन्तहरुलाई बल्ल बल्ल बानी पारेको थिएँ रातिमा फोन नगर्नलाई ।
'ओहो सरी है दाइ । मैले डिस्टर्ब गरें कि क्या हो ?'
"केइ छैन । पछि कुरा गरौंला है ।" त्यसको लागि ढिला भैसकेको थियो ।
'हस्' फोन उतैबाट काटियो ।
म भने रनभुल्लमा परें के गर्ने भनेर । ३ बजिसकेको थियो । बिहान चाँडै अफिस जानु पर्ने भएकोले ओछ्यानमा पल्टिएँ । आफुलाई निद्रा लागेन । आमा छोरा भने मस्त सुतिरहेका थिए । शायद फोनले डिस्टर्ब गरेन होला दुबैलाई । म निदाउने यत्न गर्छु सकिन । कहिले यता फर्किने, कहिले उता पल्टिने गरिरहें । तर कतिखेर निदाएँ थाहै भएन । बिहानको अलार्मले पो मलाई उठायो । आमा छोरा अझै निद्रामै थिए । म भने नित्य कर्म सकेर आफ्नो अफिस लागें ।
आजलाई यत्ति मात्रै लेख्न पाएँ बाँकी अर्को पटकलाई ।

As of now, it is little shy to a million hits on You Tube. But in near future it will get its mile stone to reach of 1 million hits. Nowadays, lots of Nepalese has access to the internet it might be a common in upcoming days to get that much. For instant lets enjoy with beautiful song by Babu Bogati "SANNANI". This is one of my son's favorite too.
Thanks for watching.

कविताको पोइ !

एकजना मित्रले भने
कवि आफ्नै कविताको पोइ !
मनमा खुल्दुली भो मलाई,
म सोध्न पुग्छु
कतै तपाईंको कविता भन्ने गर्लफ्रेन्ड छ कि ?
होईन !
त्यसो भए किन त?
मित्रले भने
साहित्य प्रति मानिसको रुचि घटे
आफ्नो कविता आफुले भन्दा अरुले नपढ्ने भएसी
आफुले बाहेक अरुले नभोग्ने स्वास्नी जस्तो भएन र?
म सहमत हुन सकिन ।

कतिका स्वास्नी पोइल गएकै देखेकोछु मैले
कति बलात्कार भएको पनि देखेकै छु मैले
कति अरुसँग सल्केको देखेको छु मैले
भन्न नभएर मात्र हो
अहिलेको समय
जहाँ संचारको पहुँच छ
इन्टरनेटको प्रभाव छ
र आजकाल सजिलो भएको छ
कतिका रचनाहरु पोइल गएका छन्
कतिका रचना बलात्कार भएका छन्
कति रचनाहरु अरुसँगै सल्केका छन्
न त यसको हिसाब किताब नै छ
न त सुरक्षाको ग्यारेन्टी नै
यी पनि हाम्रै देशको हाल बेहालबाट प्रभावित छन्
कति चोरका शिकार भएका छन्
कति डाँकाका पीडित छन्
कति लुटेराका आदी छन्
थाहा छैन वास्तविक रचनाकार को हुन भन्ने
जसलाई मन पर्‍यो उसले ट्याप्प टिप्यो
आफ्नो भित्तामा लागेर टाँस्यो
अनि आफ्नो बनायो
न कसैलाई सोध्नु छ
न कसैको अनुमति नै लिनु छ
आहा क्या काइदा !

यहाँ कविता मात्रै प्रताडित छैनन्
सबैजना सबैजसो पीडित छन् साहित्यमा
पाकिस्तानको बाढी जस्तो
हेइटीको भैंचालो जस्तो
हेर्ने मात्रै धेरै छन्
गर्ने कम नै छन्
कवि कविताको पोइ भए
कथाकार कथाका पोइ हुन्थे
गीतकार गीतका पोइ हुन्थे
यस्ता अनगिन्ती शिर्षक छन्
जसको न पोइ हुन्छ न जोइ नै
त्यसैले म मेरा मित्रसँग सहमत हुन सकिन ।

पिउने रहर

आज धेरै समय पछि पिउने रहर जाग्यो
अनि हरिभक्त कटुवालका यी कविताहरु सम्झिन पुगें ।

म आफ्नै बाटो हिंडिरहेको हुन्छु
पाइला अन्त कतै गइदिएको हुन्छ
म तिमीलाई नै सम्झिरहेको हुन्छु
तर मन अरु कसैको भइदिएको हुन्छ
म कायल छु ,
तिम्रो मुस्कान जस्तै यो रक्सीसित
कहिले मैले यसलाई खाइरहेको हुन्छु
कहिले उसले मलाई खाइरहेको हुन्छ ।


सपना बोकेर आइदिने रातहरुलाई एउटा सलाम
त्यहि सपना खोसेर लैजाने प्रभातलाई अर्को सलाम
यहाँ सजिलैसित जिउनलाई एउटा निहुँ पाएको छ
रक्सी बनाइदिने त्यो पहिलो स्रिष्टीलाई ठुलो सलाम ।

नाममा के छ ?

नाममा खासै के छ र ? यसो सोचेर ल्याम्दा यो एउटा सामान्य लाउन सक्च । तर कति यसैका लागि मरिमेट्ने पनि छन् । कतिले नामकै लागि बलिदान द्या छन् आफुलाई । भानुभक्तको कवितामै पनि नामको लागि भनेरै घाँसीले कुवा खनाको भन्ने उल्लेख छ । त्यसैले नामको महत्व छ भन्ने म पनि ठान्चु । सानोमा बाउ आमाले जे भनेर बोलायो, त्यहि नाम भयो । स्कुल गएर अक्षर चिन्ने भएसी आफ्नो नाम लेख्न पनि जानियो । अलिक बुझ्ने भएसी, त्यो नाम मन नपरे फेर्न पनि मिल्यो । आहा कति काइदा छ नाममा । नाम र दामको पछाडि नै अहिले सारा समाज, देश र संसार लागि परेको छ । यसरी सोच्दा नाम भने गज्जबको हुनुपर्छ , ताकि सबैको मुखमा झुन्डिने खालको होस् भन्ने सोच्नु जायज हो । तर जब त्यो काम आफुमा आइपर्छ, अनि त्यहि सामान्य कुरो कठिन बन्न पुग्दो र'च । आफ्नो नाम यहाँका खैरेहरुले भन्न नजान्दा कैले काँही रिस पनि उठ्छ । तर के गर्नु उनीहरुले पैले कैले सुन्या भे पो । जिन्दगीमा नसुन्या नाम कनी कनी भनि टोपल्चन त्यो पनि अशुद्ध । अब उनीहरुलाई मेरो नाम मिलेन, राम्ररी बोलाए बोल्चु नत्र बोल्दिन भन्न पनि मिलेन । दोष त हाम्रो अनि हाम्रो बाउ आमाको पो हो त । जल्ले यस्तो अप्ठेरो नाम राखिदिए । खैरेको जिब्रो नै फट्किन्न अनि के गरोस बिचराहरु । सँगै काम गरेको पनि ३-३ वर्ष भयो तै मेरो नाम अझै राम्ररी उच्चारण गर्न जान्या छैनन् मोराहरु । हाम्ले चैं फेरि उनीहरुको नाम भने फ्याट्ट भन्न जान्या कसरी होला ? कैले काहिं आफैं छक्क पर्छु । एकमनले नामै फेरौं की जस्तो पनि ला हो । सप्पैले गर्चन् म मात्रै के कम भनेर भन्ठान्या पनि हो । नभए छोट्याम कि भन्ने पनि लाग्या त हो , तर आफैंलाई अप्ठेरो परो । कसैले "इस्" भनेर बोलाए, आफैंलाई लोप्पा ख्वा जस्तो भो । कसैले 'इजी' भने पनि ठिकै, कसैले 'आइसोर' भने पनि बेसै भनेर बस्नु पर्‍या छ । आफुलाई नाम गाह्रो भएर हत्तु बनाछ । क्यार्नु मेरा बा आमाले नाम रख्नै जानेनचन् भन्ठान्याछु । तर म उहाँहरुलाइ दोष दिन्न । हाम्रा कुन चैं पुर्खा पो खैर्‍या देशाँ आ'थेर, म पनि यहाँ आई टोपल्चु भनेर सोच्ने उनीहरुले । म आफैंले रोजेर मुन्ट्या न हुँ ह्याँ, नभे'त उतै मनग्य थियो नि गरी खानलाई । आफ्ना त सप्पै उतै छन् नि अझै । हाम्रा सन्तानाँ मै मात्र त परें ह्याँ मुन्टिने,किन बा आमालाई दोष दिनु बेकारमा । अब ह्याँ आसी गाह्रो साह्रो जे भे नी आफ्नै हो । उता भनेर पत्याउने पनि होइन । अम्रिकाँ त पैसाको बोट छ क्यारे टिपेर पठाउनलाई भनेर टार्छु कसैले पैसा माग्यो भने । उनीहरुले कहिल्या जुनिआँ फोन अर्ने होइन । यसो घरतिर सन्चो बिसन्चो के छ भनेर फोन अर्‍यो दु:ख मात्रै देखाउँचन । उताटी फोन आउने भनेको पैसा चाइयो भने मात्रै हो ल । अब नेपाल्टी फोन आयो भने सिदै उठाउंदिन । जरुरी भए मेसेज छोड्चन, नभए वास्ता पनि छैन । त्यै भनेर चलिरा'छ ऐलेसम्म । म चैं काँको कुरो काँ पुर्‍याइचु । जे भे नि नाम र दामकै कुरो त भो आखिर ।

अब जाउँ नामतिर । आफ्ना बा आमाले त नाम छान्न जानेनन भन्ने लागेर आफ्ना पालाँ सन्तानलाई अलि गतिलो नाम दिउँ भन्ने लाओ । अनि सुरु भो नाम खोज्ने सिलसिला । इन्टरनेटका थुप्रै साइट चहारियो । हुँदा हुदाँ बच्चाको नाम भको कितापै पनि किनियो । तर खोइ किन हो किन नाम छान्नै अप्ठेरो भो । आफुलाई मन पर्‍या नाम कि आफन्तले उछुट्ट्याइ सक्या हुने कि नजिकै चिनेको या साथीको भैदिने । दुबैको मिलार बनाउँ पनि साह्रै असजिलो । 'इ' र 'च' लाई मिस्सार केइ नाम फुरेन मन खाने । त्यसमा पनि मलाई मन पर्‍या उनीलाई मन नपर्ने, उनीलाई मन पर्‍या मलाई मन नपर्ने । थुप्रै नाम टिपियो, अनि मेटियो पनि । होमवर्क पनि दह्रो गरियो । दुबै जनाको चित्त बुझेन, अनि परेन त फसाद ! हाम्ले खोज्या नाम नेपाली झल्किने पनि होस्, खैरेलाई भन्न पनि सजिलो होस् अनि राम्रो अर्थ पनि लागोस् । अन्तिम समयसम्म नामको लागि हाम्रो संघर्ष भयो, तै नाम जुरेन । अन्तमा छोराको नाम 'रोहण' राख्ने भनेर उनीले छानिन । मैले नाइ नास्ती गरिन । अस्पतालको बोर्डमा समेत ठोकेर आएँ । घर आसी मेरो मन बिचलित भयो । के नमिल्या नमिल्या जस्तो भो । अनि विचार अरें, हन यो त अलिक रुन्चे नाम भ'नर ? फेरि नेट चा'रें । केइ सिप नला'सी "सुमित" भन्ने नाम रोजें अर्थात असल साथी, बेष्ट फ्रेन्ड क्या त । उनी पनि बिहे अगाडिसम्म मेरो मिल्ने साथी थिइन । त्यहि भनेर छोरालाई सुमित नाम दिएँ । उनीले केही बोलिनन । यसको अर्थ उनीले पनि स्वीकृति दिइन भन्ने मेरो बुझाई भो । अस्पताल भर्ना भको मान्छेले के नै धेरै बोल्थिन र? म पनि हुस्सु भैदिएँ । सप्पै कागजपत्रमा सुमित भन्ने नाम लेखियो । म मक्ख परें । तर त्यो धेरै दिनसम्म टिकेन । खैरेहरुको जिब्रो सुमित नाम पनि उच्चारण गर्न नसक्ने परेछ । अलिक राम्ररी भन्नेले 'सुमिट' भन्ने नत्र उहि 'समिट' भनेर पो भन्दा र'चन ए गाठें ! परेन त फसाद । त्यत्रो दु:ख गरिकन छानेको नाम समेत भन्न नजान्ने रैचन यी खैरेका जातले भनेसी । क्यार्नु अब, दोधारमा पर्‍यौं । यी खैरेका जस्तै नाम राखौं मनले नमान्ने । हाम्रो नाम खैरेले भन्न नजान्ने । लौ न तपाईंहरुले नै सुझाउनु परो हाम्रो छोरोको नाम । नाम जुराउनु पनि चौपट्टै गाह्रो पो र'च त । ह्याँको नियमानुसार नाम फेर्न अदालत जानु पर्ने र'च, त्यो पनि गर्न तयार छौं हामी । बरु नाम चैं नेपाली, राम्रो अर्थ लाग्ने तर खैरेहरुको जिब्राँ नि झुन्डिने चैं हुनु परो ।

व्यस्त जीवन

जीवनको अनेक उकाली ओराली पार गर्दै याहाँसम्म आइपुगेको छौं । भन्ने र देख्नेहरुका लागि हामीले प्रगती गरेका छौं , तर व्यस्तताको बयान गरी साध्य छैन । सधैं केहि न केहि आइलाग्ने । दिनभर काममा व्यस्त, घरमा आएपछि छोरोलाई खेलाउनै पर्‍यो । दिनभरी आमासँग खेलेर वाक्क हुँदो हो, मलाई देखेसी मेरो पछि लागि हाल्ने बानी छ । आफ्नो भने बेहाल । फेरि उसलाई सुताउन उस्तै गाह्रो छ । मध्यरात भन्दा अघि सुत्ने नामनै लिंदैन, सधैंको १-२ बज्छ । आफु भने बिहानै उठेर काममा जानु पर्ने मान्छे । समय मिलाउनै को सधैं धौ धौ । अनि छोरो नेपाली गीत भनेसी भुतुक्कै हुन्छ । पहिले पहिले नेपाली रिमिक्स गीत हेर्थ्यो, आजकाल नेपाली लोकगीतको फ्यान भको छ । आँखा झिमिक्क नगरी हेर्छ । यदि उसलाई मन नपरेको गीत आए, रोइदिए पुग्यो । अनि अर्को गीत लगाइदिन परिहाल्यो । उसलाई मन परेको गीत त दोहोर्‍याइ तेहर्‍याइ हेरेर पुग्दैन । अब पहिले पहिले किनेका भिसिडीबाट वाक्क भैसक्यो । युट्युबमा भएको हेर्न थालेको छ, त्यो पनि कति सम्मलाई हुने हो थाहा छैन । जे होस् टेक्नोलोजीले सहयोग गरेकै छ ।

सुमित नेपाली गीत हेर्दै

बच्चा भएपछि जिम्मेवारी बढ्छ नै, हामी दुबैको धेरै समय आजकाल बाबु हेर्नमा नै बितेको छ । कुनै कुनै बेला समय नै अपुग भए झैं हुन्छ । हामी दुबै काम गर्ने भएकोले समय मिलाउन अलिक गाह्रो भएको छ । फेरि मेरो काम भनेको सातै दिन जस्तो हुने भएकोले पनि गाह्रो भएको हो । हाललाई मेरो प्रोजेक्ट सकिन सकिन लागेकोले झन बेफुर्सदिलो भैदिएको छु । अब १-२ हप्तामा सकिन्छ होला । त्यसपछि भने मसँग प्रसस्त समय हुनेछ । किनकी त्यो प्रोजेक्ट पछि बेरोजगार हुनेछु भन्ने पक्का छ । चाहे त्यो केहि समयको लागि नै किन नहोस् । सोच्नलाई त बाबु पाएपछि नै जागिर छाडिदिन्छु भन्ने सोच बनाइ सकेको थिएँ । प्रोजेक्टको बिचैमा छाडिदिन मनले मानेन । ५-६ महिनामा सकिइहाल्छ भन्ने भयो । आर्थिक मन्दीको बेला च्याट्टै छाडिहाल्नु बुद्धिमानी होइन भनेर पनि छाड्न सकिन । फेरि भने जस्तो जागिर सितिमिती पाइंदैन । बरु जेनतेन चलाउनु पर्ला भन्ने सोचेर त्यो जागिर धानिरहें । मे महिनामा सकिनु पर्ने प्रोजेक्ट एउटा सबकन्ट्रयाक्टरले धोका दिएकोले २ महिना लम्बियो । उनीलाई जति गाह्रो भए पनि केही गुनासो गरिनन । त्यसैले मैले जागिर खान पाइरहें । बरु अब त्यो जागिर भरे भोली भएर बसेको छ । त्यसैले अहिले आएर मनमा कस्तो कस्तो लागिरहेछ । भविष्यको चिन्ता भन्दा पनि अब यसपछि के गर्ने हो भन्ने पिर थपिएको छ । शायद २-४ महिना खाली बस्छु या जे जस्तो जागिर पाइन्छ त्यसमा सन्तोष गर्छु त्यो पछिको कुरो हो । तर अहिलेलाई भने जे पर्ला त्यो टर्ला भनेर बस्नु सिवाय अरु कुनै विकल्प भए जस्तो लाग्दैन ।

अन्तमा , जे सोचेर यो ब्लग शुरु गरेको थिएँ त्यसको एक चौंथाइ लक्ष्य पनि प्राप्त गर्न सकिरहेको छैन । व्यस्त जीवनको यो समयप्रति मेरो गुनासो चैं छैन । मात्र यत्ति हो, कुनै बेला मसँग समय हुँदा पनि त्यसलाई ब्लग अपडेट गर्न तिर लगाउन सकिन; मूडले गर्दा । लेख्न समय भएर मात्र नहुने वातावरण पनि चाहिने रहेछ, होइन र? आउने दिनहरुमा फुर्सदको समय यसैमा लगाउने विचार गरेकोछु । हेरौं के हुने हो ।

The Cracked Pot

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

‘I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.’

The old woman smiled, ‘Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side?’

‘That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.’

For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.
Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.’

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

SO, to all of my cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

GLUTATHIOINE: The Mother of All Antioxidants

It's the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease -- yet you've probably never heard of it. It's the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer's disease. There are more than 89,000 medical articles about it -- but your doctor doesn't know how address the epidemic deficiency of this critical life-giving molecule ...

What is it? I'm talking about the mother of all antioxidants, the master detoxifier and maestro of the immune system: GLUTATHIONE (pronounced "gloota-thigh-own").

The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.

This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And your liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of detoxification.

In treating chronically ill patients with Functional Medicine for more than 10 years, I have discovered that glutathione deficiency is found in nearly all very ill patients. These include people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease and more.

At first I thought that this was just a coincidental finding, but over the years I have come to realize that our ability to produce and maintain a high level of glutathione is critical to recovery from nearly all chronic illness -- and to preventing disease and maintaining optimal health and performance. The authors of those 76,000 medical articles on glutathione I mentioned earlier have found the same thing!

So in today's blog I want to explain what glutathione is, why it's important and give you 9 tips that will help you optimize your glutathione levels, improve your detoxification system and protect help yourself from chronic illness.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a very simple molecule that is produced naturally all the time in your body. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids -- cysteine, glycine and glutamine.

The secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule. It acts like fly paper and all the bad things in the body stick onto it, including free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals.

Normally glutathione is recycled in the body -- except when the toxic load becomes too great. And that explains why we are in such trouble ...

In my practice, I test the genes involved in glutathione metabolism. These are the genes involved in producing enzymes that allow the body to create and recycle glutathione in the body. These genes have many names, such as GSTM1, GSTP1 and more.

These genes impaired in some people for a variety of important reasons. We humans evolved in a time before the 80,000 toxic industrial chemicals found in our environment today were introduced into our world, before electromagnetic radiation was everywhere and before we polluted our skies, lakes, rivers, oceans and teeth with mercury and lead.

That is why most people survived with the basic version of the genetic detoxification software encoded in our DNA, which is mediocre at ridding the body of toxins. At the time humans evolved we just didn't need more. Who knew we would be poisoning ourselves and eating a processed, nutrient-depleted diet thousands of years later?

Because most of us didn't require additional detoxification software, almost of half of the population now has a limited capacity to get rid of toxins. These people are missing GSTM1 function -- one of the most important genes needed in the process of creating and recycling glutathione in the body.

Nearly all my very sick patients are missing this function. The one-third of our population that suffers from chronic disease is missing this essential gene. That includes me. Twenty years ago I became mercury poisoned and suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome due to this very problem. My GSTM1 function was inadequate and I didn't produce enough glutathione as a result. Eventually, my body broke down and I became extremely ill ...

This is the same problem I see in so many of my patients. They are missing this critical gene and they descend into disease as a result. Let me explain how this happens ...

The Importance of Glutathione in Protecting Against Chronic Illness

Glutathione is critical for one simple reason: It recycles antioxidants. You see, dealing with free radicals is like handing off a hot potato. They get passed around from vitamin C to vitamin E to lipoic acid and then finally to glutathione which cools off the free radicals and recycles other antioxidants. After this happens, the body can "reduce" or regenerate another protective glutathione molecule and we are back in business.

However, problems occur when we are overwhelmed with too much oxidative stress or too many toxins. Then the glutathione becomes depleted and we can no longer protect ourselves against free radicals, infections, or cancer and we can't get rid of toxins. This leads to further sickness and soon we are in the downward spiral of chronic illness.

But that's not all. Glutathione is also critical in helping your immune system do its job of fighting infections and preventing cancer. That's why studies show that it can help in the treatment of AIDS.(i)

Glutathione is also the most critical and integral part of your detoxification system. All the toxins stick onto glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool -- and out of your body.

And lastly, it also helps us reach peak mental and physical function. Research has shown that raised glutathione levels decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance and shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development.

If you are sick or old or are just not in peak shape, you likely have glutathione deficiency.
In fact, the top British medical journal, the Lancet, found the highest glutathione levels in healthy young people, lower levels in healthy elderly, lower still in sick elderly and the lowest of all in the hospitalized elderly. (ii)

Keeping yourself healthy, boosting your performance, preventing disease and aging well depends on keeping your glutathione levels high. I'll say it again ... Glutathione is so important because it is responsible for keeping so many of the keys to UltraWellness optimized.

It is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation. It is the master detoxifier and the body's main antioxidant, protecting our cells and making our energy metabolism run well.

And the good news is that you can do many things to increase this natural and critical molecule in your body. You can eat glutathione-boosting foods. You can exercise. And you can take glutathione-boosting supplements. Let's review more specifics about each.

9 Tips to Optimize your Glutathione Levels

These 9 tips will help you improve your glutathione levels, improve your health, optimize your performance and live a long, healthy life.

Eat Foods that Support Glutathione Production

1. Consume sulfur-rich foods. The main ones in the diet are garlic, onions and the cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, etc.).

2. Try bioactive whey protein. This is great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis. As you know, I am not a big fan of dairy. But this is an exception -- with a few warnings. The whey protein MUST be bioactive and made from non-denatured proteins ("denaturing" refers to the breakdown of the normal protein structure). Choose non-pasteurized and non-industrially produced milk that contains no pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics. Immunocal is a prescription bioactive non-denatured whey protein that is even listed in the Physician's Desk Reference.

Exercise for Your Way to More Glutathione

3. Exercise boosts your glutathione levels and thereby helps boost your immune system, improve detoxification and enhance your body's own antioxidant defenses. Start slow and build up to 30 minutes a day of vigorous aerobic exercise like walking or jogging, or play various sports. Strength training for 20 minutes 3 times a week is also helpful.

Take Glutathione Supporting Supplements

One would think it would be easy just to take glutathione as a pill, but the body digests protein -- so you wouldn't get the benefits if you did it this way. However, the production and recycling of glutathione in the body requires many different nutrients and you CAN take these. Here are the main supplements that need to be taken consistently to boost glutathione. Besides taking a multivitamin and fish oil, supporting my glutathione levels with these supplements is the most important thing I do every day for my personal health.

4. N-acetyl-cysteine. This has been used for years to help treat asthma and lung disease and to treat people with life-threatening liver failure from Tylenol overdose. In fact, I first learned about it in medical school while working in the emergency room. It is even given to prevent kidney damage from dyes used during x-ray studies.

5. Alpha lipoic acid. This is a close second to glutathione in importance in our cells and is involved in energy production, blood sugar control, brain health and detoxification. The body usually makes it, but given all the stresses we are under, we often become depleted.

6. Methylation nutrients (folate and vitamins B6 and B12). These are perhaps the most critical to keep the body producing glutathione. Methylation and the production and recycling of glutathione are the two most important biochemical functions in your body. Take folate (especially in the active form of 5 methyltetrahydrofolate), B6 (in active form of P5P) and B12 (in the active form of methylcobalamin).

7. Selenium. This important mineral helps the body recycle and produce more glutathione.

8. A family of antioxidants including vitamins C and E (in the form of mixed tocopherols), work together to recycle glutathione.

9. Milk thistle (silymarin) has long been used in liver disease and helps boost glutathione levels.

So use these nine tips and see how they work to help you optimzie your glutathione levels. When you do, you will take one more step to lifelong vibrant health.

नयाँ वर्षको शुभकामना


एक एक गर्दै बिते सिंगो साल पनि
थाहै नपाई सकियो वर्ष गन्दै नगनी
लेख्न नपाई सिद्धिए शब्दादिशव्द पनि
दिनै पर्‍यो नयाँ वर्षको शुभकामना भनी ।।।
(कर गरेर होइन क्या )

{फोटो चैं चोर्‍या है}

आफुलाई भने एकवर्ष बुढो भएँ भन्ने पिर पनि

केहि चोइटाहरु


पैसा कमाउने धुनमा छौं हामी
सबै जना धनी हुने भए
काम चैं कस्ले गर्ने हो कुन्नि ?


महङ्गीनलाई यसपालि बजेट भाषण कुर्नै परेन
बढेको भाउ कहिल्यै घटेन,
तर के गर्नु खान परेकै छ, लाउन परेकै छ ।


२० वर्ष पहिले भन्दा बजेट १० गुना बढेको छ
हामी कागज़को विकासमा मख्ख छौं
तर देशमा गरीबी घटेको तथ्याङ्क छ त ?


कमाएको धनको कर सबैले तिर्नु पर्छ
तर कर तिरेर नांगिने भए
गरीब हुन कसलाई पो मन छ र ?


सेवक घटेको होइन, समाज सेवा गर्ने धेरै छन्
तर हाम्रोमा माग्ने नै धेरै भएपछि
कस्ले नै पो सक्छ र भाग पुर्‍याउनलाई ।

हजारौंलाई मारेर सत्तामा पुगेको मान्छे
अहिले बलि दिन नपाएर होला
ग्रह दशा बिग्रेको छ .

चड्कन मन्त्री

नेपालमा लोकतन्त्र आको छ
कसैलाई झोंकतन्त्र आको छ
हाम्रा मन्त्रीलाई ठोकतन्त्र आको छ .

विना विभागीय मन्त्री

मन्त्री बेरोजगार भएको देशमा
हामी युवाहरुले जागीर पाइएन भनेर
गुनासो गर्नु बेकार छ .


माग भने दोहोरो नागरिकता अनि मतदानको
सुविधाको नाममा
राजनीति गरेर कमाउने खेल हो .
